Becoming very popular on the market are nontoxic alternatives that do not contain these chemicals. Make sure you know what is in the products you are buying if you are concerned about possible health problems through exposure to these chemicals. The small scrub brush is to help loosen stubborn stains that the machine has a hard time tackling. I would definitely recommend going over the entire area with the machine before determining the need for scrubbing. Getting on your hands and knees to scrub out a stain is not much fun so I would avoid it if at all possible. If you do decide to use traditional carpet cleaning chemicals a pair of rubber gloves and a respirator should be used to protect you as much as possible from exposure.
Removing the damaged carpet: Start by using a straight edge and a row finder. An ice pick or a Phillips screwdriver can be used instead of a row finder. Place the straight edge on the carpet with the groove side down. Use the row finder to separate the nap. Do this by dragging the point of the row finder across the carpet up and down and against the edge of the straight edge. Use a slotted blade knife with a fresh blade. You can use a slotted blade knife (butted up against the straight edge to cut through the carpet without cutting through too much of the nap if you used the row finder properly. The more nap you cut off the worse the carpet patch will look.
You should start by retreating any areas that you think will be a problem. Coffee or juice spills heavy traffic areas or pet mess areas are all potential areas for pretreatment. One thing to note about pet messes; there are many good enzyme based cleaners that can be purchased at your local pet store that are great to clean pet messes. This usually involves cleaning the area several days or even weeks ahead of time to allow the enzyme formula to work. This schedule should be planned around the date you need to clean the carpet by. If you really think some areas may be a problem a little scrubbing with the brush to help release some stains would not hurt.
Choose a scrap of carpet thats leftover from the original installation for the carpet patch. If you dont have any leftover scraps of carpet then youll need to remove a piece from a closet or from under a piece of furniture. Some people try to find a piece of matching carpet at a carpet store but its nearly impossible. On occasion we will have the customer buy some carpet from a carpet store that is very close to matching. We then take carpet from a closet to do the patch with and use the new carpet in the closet. Determine the direction of the nap. Carpet lays down more when you brush your hand in one direction than in other directions. Its incredibly important for proper carpet patching that all the carpet runs the same direction. Sometimes its really hard to tell which way the carpet nap runs. All I can say is to keep brushing your hand in different directions until you really get to know the carpet. If you keep at it youll figure it out.
